Perth & Kinross: Recycling for Your Business

71% of businesses in Perth & Kinross want to be able to recycle.

Perth & Kinross Council working to provide recycling services for all businesses across Perth & Kinross.

WHAT can be recycled?

Your business can recycle:

  • Cardboard
  • Glass
  • Paper
  • Drinks cans

Facilities for recycling other materials including ink cartridges, computers, garden waste, scrap metal and mobile phones are also available.

WHY should my business recycle?

Recycling your waste can save you money.
Current and future legislation requirements and increasing landfill tax costs will mean that sending waste to landfill will become more expensive. Cans, cardboard, glass and paper which have been separated can be collected at a lower cost than if these materials are disposed of as mixed trade waste.

Your waste is a valuable resource.
Much of the waste that we throw away is a resource which can be reused or recycled into new products. For example, glass bottles and jars are recycled into new glass and waste paper is recycled into newspaper and other paper products.

Recycling your waste helps the environment and local organisations.
By recycling your waste you can save natural resources, reduce the need for landfill and reduce the amount of waste-related pollution. By recycling you will also be providing opportunities for local charities, voluntary groups and businesses to collect and reprocess recyclates into new products.

HOW can my business recycle?
